The NBA trade deadline may now be a big day after the amount of trades made yesterday and some were really big. Here are some of the big trades that left fans with heads up and down and some confused…
-Nets (now Timberwolves) veteran Big-Man KG: Kevin Garnett will RETURN to his 1st and former team the Minnesota Timber Wolves! He was traded for Thaddeus Young who was also traded to the Wolves before the season part of the big Kevin Love deal from the Sixers! KG is aging and doesn’t have the glimpse and glamor of the old Wolves and Celtics Big Man. KG was basically the best Timber Wolves player of all time leading in many categories by a ton. He may retire after this year but rumors state he may play another year or two then also rumors state he may take a spot with the Wolves (not a player) but something! Fans are very excited in Minnesota for their star to return!
-No, Thunder PG Reggie Jackson (the basketball player) was not traded to the Nets in the blockbuster trade for Brook Lopez (and it never happened) but he was traded to the Pistons in return for Enes Kanter, Steve Novak, D.J. Augustin and Kyle Singler! They will build on the Thunder Bench while the Jazz who were part of the deal got Kendrick Perkins from OKC…
-Sixers fans can’t hear any worse these days. Now they’ve traded their “franchise centerpiece”, rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams to the Bucks with the Sixers getting multiple 1st and 2nd round draft picks like always. The Bucks got MCW, Tyler Ennis and Miles Plumlee (from the Suns). The Bucks traded PG Brandon Knight to Pheonix to add to Eric Bledsoe’s side…
-The Grand Daddy of all these trades sent star PG/SG Goran Dragic to the Heat after complaining to the Suns a ton! The Heat also received his brother Zoran Dragic. In return the Suns got Danny Granger, 2 1st round picks from the large stock that the Suns have (they had 3 in this past draft) also adding John Salmons from the Pelicans. The Pelly’s got Norris Cole and Shawne Williams from Miami… The Heat now have a great lineup to make a run with…
-Sixers get Javale McGee, Chukwudiebere Maduabaum, and a 1st round pick for the rights to Cenk Akyol (to the Nuggets)
-Knicks receive Alexey Shved and 2 2nd round picks from Houston for PG Pablo Prigioni
-Sixers got Isaiah Canaan and a 2nd round pick from the rockets for KJ McDaniels
-Nuggets trade Arron Affalo to Portland and Alonzo Gee for Will Barton, Thomas Robinson, Victor Claver and multiple picks
-Straight out Ramon Sessions was traded from Sacramento to Washington for Andre Miller
-Suns traded another PG Isaiah Thomas to the Celtics for Marcus Thronton and a 1st round pick.
-Tashaun Prince will RETURN to Motor City for Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome headed to Boston
